Default Anyone with a Valve Tester near to Maidstone Kent?

Hi, looking for anyone near to me who has a Valve Tester I could possible use. I'm happy to pay for the time and usage.

Also if anyone near to me selling a Valve Tester I would be very interested.

Thanks in advance

I'm a fairly long drive from Maidstone (I'm in South Oxfordshire) but you'd be welcome to test whatever you need on one of mine (AVO III and CT160).

I might possibly be persuaded to sell my Taylor 45C though.

Thanks Craig for the kind offer, I wish we just lived a bit closer to each other. If you do want to sell your valve tester I'd probably be interested. I only have a budget of 200 - 300 which may not be enough looking at current prices on the Internet.

Seems that valve testers in the USA are much cheaper and more commonly available. But likely would need a step down transformer and a chart to convert our valve numbers to their equivalents.
